You might be right about all of that.

After watching the finale, I had a brief thought:

What if Tim did go to the FBI, and Beeman is assigned to interview him? He'd say: "My boring neighbors are Soviet agents? No way!" And he'd quash the whole investigation.

I doubt it'll happen like that, though.

I keep thinking that Beeman's and Phillip's/Elizabeth's story arcs will eventually collide. Maybe this will be the impetus...

There was a scene earlier this season, I think, where Stan took a long look at Elizabeth during one of his drop-in visits. It was after seeing the composite sketch done after Gaad's assault. He'd be surprised, sure, but like any good FBI agent, he'd follow the leads. And maybe start to put things together...

In the timeline of the show, it just happened that very day. Aaaaaand, there goes the last chunk of Philip's soul. This season had both Phil&Liz forced to commit horrific murders of innocents in the line of duty. Clearly, this isn't a job that leads to many happy endings.

Man, is it January yet? Like Andy Greenwald says, "Best show on TV, full stop".
The suicide not that can also be read as an apology / cry for help from Phillip.
